Little Chandrasekhar

It was the first day of a school in USA and a new Indian student
named Chandrasekhar Subramanian entered the fourth grade. The
teacher said, "Let's begin by reviewing some American History. Who
said 'Give me Liberty , or give me Death'?"

She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Chandrasekhar, who had his
hand up: 'Patrick Henry, 1775' he said.

'Very good!'

Who said 'Government of the People, by the People, for the People,
shall not perish from the Earth?'

Again, no response except from Chandrasekhar. 'Abraham Lincoln, 1863'
said Chandrasekhar.

The teacher snapped at the class, 'Class, you should be ashamed.
Chandrasekhar, who is new to our country, knows more about its
history than you do.'

She heard a loud whisper: 'F*ck the Indians,'

'Who said that?' she demanded. Chandrasekhar put his hand up.

'General Custer, 1862.'

At that point, a student in the back said, 'I'm gonna puke.'

The teacher glares around and asks 'All right! Now, who said

Again, Chandrasekhar says, 'George Bush to the Japanese Prime
Minister, 1991.'

Now furious, another student yells, 'Oh yeah? Suck this!'

Chandrasekhar jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts
to the teacher , 'Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!'

Now with almost mob hysteria someone said 'You little shit. If
you say anything else, I'll kill you.'

Chandrasekhar frantically yells at the top of his voice, '
Michael Jackson to the child witnesses testifying against him- 2004.'

The teacher fainted.

And as the class gathered around the teacher on the floor,
someone said, 'Oh shit, we're screwed!'

And Chandrasekhar said quietly, "I think it was the American
people, November 5, 2008."

    If a first term Congress-critter has the experience to run for, and win, the Presidency why can't he appoint a Secretary of State who's foreign policy experience is dodging imaginary sniper fire?
